Intrusion is frightening

 

Right now in Europe, lobbyists from companies such as Facebook and Google are pressuring the European Union to soften its laws on privacy. One of the proposals has been known as “the right to be forgotten.” Not much in the media about this, but we certainly are indignant about the Obama administration’s spying.

Only half the conversation about the Internet’s web in all our lives has been started. Has anyone tried to sign on for LinkedIn only to discover it now has all of your email addresses? You can ask them to discontinue your membership, but I don’t trust them to delete the email addresses.

Has anyone ever thought that there are good reasons to not be found on Facebook, such as by an abusive ex?
